  • We visited Mantua on a scorching hot day and so limited our activity somewhat by visiting only one of the two main Palazzos. Palazzo Ducale is a massive place that takes quite a while to work your way...  more »
  • You need at least 2 hours to immerse yourself in this huge castle as there are lots of beautiful art pieces which shouldn`t be missed.  more »
  • The place to go in Mantua. Large Palazzo with adjacent buildings and gardens. There are permanent art collections as well as temporal exhibits. BIG place, you need to do a lot of walking, some stairs ...  more »

  • Every place in this area is wonderful. I think Verona is such a beautiful district. This Palace and all the surrounding buildings was really beautiful
  • Frescoes inside is impressive. St George Castle next to it has monumental walls and moat. Parking around is difficult though.
  • If you go to Mantova, this is the first place you should go visit. It is very elegant and recommendable to visit. It costs around 10€ and you need about 2h to visit
  • Definitely worth the trip. €12 per person is expensive though
  • A fantastic place to historic cultural level, amazing frescoes and Renaissance air anywhere to visit if you are in Mantova
